    When I turn on Airconditioner, Tesla (Solar) app reports strange numbers

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    What's the threat here? Some time in the last 130 seconds, the attacker had a valid card key, authorized unlocking, that is capable of authorizing a new key by just putting it on the cupholder. Presumably he still has it. Relay attacks don't work well with NFC.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Mod: I moved 25 posts (and added my own) to Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Discussion Thread . I did this for two reasons: to keep this thread clear for other discussions that don't have their own place to be, and so that all of the valuable discussion appears in a single thread. As has...

    Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Discussion Thread

    The problem with BTC and some other Proof-of-Work systems is energy. The energy used to secure the underlying blockchain, with the side effect of mining more bitcoins, is gone forever (turned into heat). It isn't like you can take it back out of the bitcoins later. That energy has a cost...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I thought the board might pre-approve the stock split, which might have accelerated the timetable for it to happen, but apparently not. From the filing about the AGM: "Our Board intends to approve the Stock Split, subject to and contingent upon stockholder approval of the Authorized Shares...

    Mod: Seriously, people, 17 WD40 posts, 4 complaints, and I'm jetlagged from getting off a plane from Sydney. You are on a slippery slope here. Please exercise restraint, or if you must show off how much you know, do it in the off-topic thread, keep the grease out of here.--ggr

    US Market Situation and Outlook (Rob Stark's American Megathread)

    Not directly related, but I was surprised yesterday to find a Subaru store in a shopping mall in suburban Sydney. Aside from Tesla and Lucid, I've seen the occasional car on display, but never a traditional car maker store before. Subaru

    Incorrect use of the word "exponentially". This is a huge bugbear for me. One form of Tsiolkovsky's rocket equation: Note that it is actually linear in relation to total mass, the exponential relates to the exhaust velocity.

    EV Spotting Thread

    I was in Canberra (ACT, Australia; the capital) last week, and there were white M3's everywhere. I saw exactly one non-white Tesla (of any kind). Definitely overrepresented there, I hardly saw any in Sydney, proportionally speaking.

    Elon & Twitter

    There is active discussion among moderators about when to lock this thread and ban further discussion about the twitter purchase. The argumentative nature of the last page or so brings this outcome closer.

    Orbital refueling

    Watched a silly movie called "Moonfall" on a plane to Australia. It had a number of complimentary comments about Elon and SpaceX, and one of the minor plot points was that they used a SpaceX orbital refueling station to save Earth. Having said that, don't go out of your way to see it unless...

    ITM call options?

    I can't think of any scenario in which (1) makes any sense. The choice between the others depends mainly on tax implications. If tax doesn't come into the equation (tax-exempt account and you just want maximum profit and to end up with stock), (4) is best at any time before expiry. (2) and (3)...

    Wiki Falcon Super Heavy/Starship - General Development Discussion

    The booster has two tanks, one LOX and the other Liquid Methane. (I don't know which is which, and a quick search doesn't tell me either definitively, but I think the bottom one is the LOX tank. LOX is denser than Methane, makes sense to put it at the bottom.) Anyway, there has to be a way for...

    Normally Yahoo doesn't update until the 10k is out, and often a couple of days after that. So this is quite unexpected. What I have never understood is how anyone could look at the dots and circles and put the Q1 circle below the Q4 circle. Madness.

    Someone posted old, debunked FUD, also completely off topic for this thread. You (and 9 others) replied within minutes. One of the replies (not yours) was about to lead down a real rathole, not to mention being completely against the terms of service. I don't do moderation much any more, but I...

    Will it hold my garbage cans? (I miss Wagons and SUVs, not liking CUVs.)

    I was reminded yesterday of the Leyland P76, a large sedan built for Australia. A friend's father just bought one to fix up. Had the biggest boot (trunk) of any car around.

    IBKR SWIFT payment to me delayed several days - anything I can do?

    I have problems with about one in 10 transfers from my ETrade account to my bank in Australia. I was also treasurer of a non-profit that did lots of wire transfers. My experience is that they often fail silently, and it takes about a month for the auditors to realize something went wrong and...

    No, there is a difference between "active" and "activist". It's pretty clear he was invited onto the board.

    Numerology on Twitter

    I don't see any reason they can't announce a record date and split "conditional on stockholder approval of increasing authorized stock" before the actual annual meeting. It obviously can't complete before the AGM, but I don't know how long after it would have to be. And when you think about it...

    When you're a boxer, do you want to hit the opponent once really hard, or a few times with less force? That's really the difference you're referring to. (Note: I'm not a boxer and I don't know the correct answer to that question.) I bolded one sentence above, and I disagree with that. Tesla...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    Thanks @Yoona and @adiggs for this. Definitely worth thinking about. Theorem: There is always a way that it can be worse. What happens if TSLA drops significantly some time before expiry?

    Thanks for the reply. Yes, this happens essentially every day, most days our use of grid power is zero or negative. This is backed up by our bills.

    So, I'm new to all this. I have a new Solar Roof about 6.2kW, and two new Powerwalls. I'm in San Diego on SDG&E EV-TOU5 rate, which the settings in the app allowed me to configure easily; I assume it's correct and doesn't seem relevant to my question anyway. Unless we plug in one of the cars...

    All discussion of Rivian Automotive

    It was the meeting with Elon in the Santa Monica store/service center when he explained why the price had to go up, that cemented me as a Tesla-fanboi-for-life. This is the one that was featured in "Revenge of the Electric Car", and while I was there, I never saw myself in the movie.

    Is Tesla the only EV one can buy "easily"?

    I met someone last week who had just bought an EQS. The Mercedes dealers in both San Diego and Laguna Niguel added over $10k in markup, so she bought it from Ohio instead. I don't know whether she drove or had it shipped back to San Diego.
